It is common for people to think that they absolutely must have an automobile to exist, or to place themselves in a situation in which they must-- a convenient excuse for justifying the luxury.

Unless one lives in an area that provides a fully operational mass transit system (like NYC), owning an automobile could not be considered a luxury. For all intents and purposes, an automobile is a necessity--necessary for going to work, necessary for going to the doctor, etc.

You can't possibly use the argument that "if you need a car to go to work, you've chosen the wrong job." That's plain silly.

I live on Long Island, and unlike the big city, you just have to have means to get to work, shop, etc.

Perhaps a "luxury car" is a luxury, one based on making a choice. But a car for transportation? That's another story.
